Quadrille – Dragony

Dragony:

That firestorm
of nerves teething
when you need to shed
your alligator brain –

Because snakeskin
swallowed you whole.
Because, impossible to imagine,
you are both pig and python here.

That scaly lump in your throat
is you –
a stretch to get over
yourself.


For dVerse Quadrille and friends.

  1. DUDE. This is STUNNING. I certainly hope you are sending stuff out there into the publishing world, these days. Whew. Seriously.

    1. Thanks so much. Kudos to your prompt, which of course I gnashed my teeth about and fought with like St. George and then it sat like a lump of pig refusing to move through a python, LOL! BTW, when it comes to sending stuff out — what about *you*? Hmmm??
